This Tennessee BBQ Restaurant Was Just Named One of the Best In the US

Ah, bbq in the south. It just sounds right, doesn’t it? Today we’re staying far, far away from Memphis and Nashville – they get enough attention as it is, right? – and we’re headed over to Knoxville, Tennessee’s unsung hero. In the biggest city on the east side of the state, we stopped by Dead End BBQ to figure out just why it has been listed (over and over and over again) one of the best bbq restaurants in the NATION. You heard us – take that, Memphis.
